As a school, we work with the organisation Operation Encompass, which was created to support children experiencing domestic abuse. This partnership enables the timely sharing of information directly between the police and schools.
We have ensured that a member of our staff, (Designated Safeguarding Lead) known as a Key Adult, has been trained in the Operation Encompass procedures allowing us to then use the information that has been shared, in confidence, to support the child/ren in our care.
The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 identifies children who experience domestic abuse as victims of domestic abuse in their own right.
We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our pupils and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for all those involved.
Please contact the DSL (Headteacher Jo Hall) or one of the Deputy DSLs (Deputy Headteacher, Judith Hollywood or Assistant Headteacher, Catherine Linfoot) if you have any questions or concerns.
